This restaurant has been a staple growing up. Unfortunately over the years it has gotten somewhat inconsistent. It will be a great place with good food for a year or two and then pretty average food over the next couple of years. We stop in once a year to check them out to see if it has gotten any better...

I thought it was so thoughtful. I hope to go back to have dinner and a blueberry sangria in... More

The mussels are fantastic, as are the lobster rolls, fish tacos, lobster tacos, and fish and chips. Skip the grilled chicken Caesar salad - the chide had a disgusting soft and squishy consistency and the salad was nothing special. Good service and breathtaking views. Definitely on the pricey side.

This restaurant close to the famous Nubble Lighthouse offers inside seating with waitstaff and more casual outside picnic table and pay-at-the-window food. A recent hot weather day visit prompted us to go inside and were shown to a table at the window enabling to see the ocean and the lighthouse. Despite a fairly high noise level with kids at a...

We ate an early supper, so the crowd was small and the service was faster than we have experienced when it's incredibly busy. The food was all very well-prepared, and great tasting. The prices, however seem to be steeper than they were only a year or so ago--and significantly so. The service is good, the food is great and the... More

Fox's restaurant is situated at the mainland base of the Nubble lighthouse. Ask for. window seat to really enjoy the Maine coastline at its best. Food is well prepared and wait staff friendly and helpful. Great chowder and terrific fried belly clams. Prices in line with everything else in York.

The best fried scallops I have ever tasted. Some of the best food we have ever tasted. We love to go to the light house and then order at the window and sit outside. The ice cream there is outstanding. The peanut butter ice cream is the tastiest yet. What a great experience. It was so great that we ate... More
